unboxing


At the end of February, I finally received my long-awaited Loot Crate in the mail! If you're not familiar with what exactly a Loot Crate is, it's a monthly subscription box full of nerdy toys and items. Each one has a variet...


People tend to hate microtransactions as a rule, but like any other tool, the relative quality all depends on how they're used. Make a game that suits a small but passionate audience who values the opportunity to purchase ne...


Some people say GG is the best thing in gaming today. Others say it's all flash and no substance, existing to drawing attention to itself and nothing more. No, I'm not talking about that GG. I'm talking about Guilty Gear, th...


[Accompanying music by Alphadeus] When I first heard about Loot Crate, I didn't think it would take off. A company sends you random stuff once a month? For someone like me, that's a nightmare. The inventory box of my life is...




After a Nintendo press event yesterday, I was sent home with a review unit of the New Nintendo 3DS XL. I figured it would be a good idea to record my opening of it so that I could share my trademarked cynical indignation wit...


So it's come to this, Friday videogame news. Okay. You win. I'm not usually one for console unboxing videos, but the glacier white PlayStation 4 is a thing of beauty. The console shown in this video from PlayStation Access i...


Never forget.


Unless you have access to cool things like Daft Punk sets and laser beams, unboxing videos suck. They're all bad. I've even seen ones where people are eating while unboxing, and talking with their mouths full. Gross, right? ...


It looks like things worked out for Swami, AKA the guy who got an Xbox One early and posted an unboxing video. Not long after detailing his experiences on Twitter, his system was banned from Xbox Live and his video was hit b...


Here's a lively unboxing of the PlayStation 4 debug console from Computer Bild TV. While the packaging is obviously not what we'll see for the retail versions of the system, the unit itself is consistent with the consumer-grade models -- on the outside, at least. Living vicariously through this guy. It's all I've got.


I've been looking forward to getting this book for a long time. When we featured The Sky: The Art of Final Fantasy some months back, we were told about the impending release of Deva Zan, Amano's literary debut that not ...


So, I'll be doing your Grand Theft Auto V review for you, and you'll doubtless want to know exactly how biased and paid off I am. This video, produced in the name of disclosure, reveals the expensive gift items and stacks of loot that definitely swayed my opinion. Or not. You decide.  Check out the towel, bullet whistle, and dog pockets that have bought your upcoming GTA V review!


As promised a few days ago, we're unboxing Dark Horse's three-volume art book collection, The Sky. It celebrates Yoshitaka Amano's contributions to the Final Fantasy franchise by bringing together over 500 pages of concept ar...


DO YOU WANT TO SEE SHIN MEGAMI TENSEI IV UNBOXING VIDEO? DO YOU? ME NOT KNOW YOU WELL ENOUGH. GIVE ME 1 [Life Stone]. AWOOOOOOOO! NOT SATISFIED. GIVE ME 677 MACCA. AWOOOOOOOO! GIVE ME 1 [Medicine]. OK. I SHOW YOU VIDEO. WE CAN BE FRIENDS.


Remember that Final Fantasy IV Original Soundtrack Remaster Version album we mentioned a few months back? It's finally coming out, and we've got our hands on it early to give you a peek at what to expect from the set, includi...


The thing I am most excited about regarding Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory is Nobuo Uematsu's soundtrack which also features an appearance by his band, the Earthbound Papas. The OST is included with the limited edition ...


In a moment of madness, and due to having more money than sense, I ended up purchasing the Dead Space 3 Dev Team Edition. I didn't mean to do it, it just ... kind of happened. Unable to change the past, the package arrived t...


It's our last Destructoid Show episode of 2012, so filling in for Max today is Adam Sessler, whose name I am in no way ashamed to peddle so long as it drives views to this post! (Plus, who doesn't love a good predictions epi...


Despite not normally being too into unboxing videos, I'll admit, I was eager to see what the OUYA dev kits looked like. A work in progress, this early model is being sent out now to those developers who ordered one. I'm havi...


We told you back in September that Final Fantasy Vinyls was coming. The commemorative limited edition set celebrates 25 years of Final Fantasy with 30 tracks spanning five records from the original Final Fantasy up ...


Nintendo today sent Wii U review units out to journalists, bloggers, 19th century grave robbers, and Destructoid (that is us!). As soon as the package was signed for, a camera was grabbed and a fat idiot's hands were recorded...


Happy Halo 4 day! We noted a few months ago that the Halo 4 soundtrack was being released in a variety of flavors, including digital versions and standard/limited edition physical versions. We've got the most extravagant of t...


Look at this beast of a limited edition box for Assassin's Creed III. It's so big that I couldn't even get it all in the shot. You'll see me do my best to show off the innards of this collection, which includes: a copy of A...


We detailed Ragnarok Odyssey's soundtrack with artist Kumi Tanioka earlier this week, and now XSEED is allowing us to give you an exclusive first look at the contents of the game's Mercenary Edition which includes the soundtr...


We've popped open a copy of the Forza Horizon Limited Collector's Edition so that you can peek inside for yourself. While the casing is nice (a steelbook and slip case), the innards of this package aren't much to look at as ...


THQ cobbled together an extra Darksiders II Collector's Edition from bits and pieces of the dead, allowing Destructoid to show you what it looks like a little bit. I unbox it with a really inconvenient camera angle because t...


Did you know that Rhythm Heaven Fever was getting a special edition? Neither did I. Then I got this box in the mail this morning. I'm pretty sure that this special edition won't be sold in stores, but if Nintendo decides to change its mind on that, they're sure to make a killing when the game hits stores on February 13th. Check out the video and you'll understand what I mean.


I would be remiss if I didn't mention that one of the best parts of my job is receiving mysterious packages in the mail from various developers and publishers. Sometimes we know to expect them, and other times they're a wond...


I don't know who hacked our YouTube account and put this disgusting video in, but we'll have to go with it as we have no other copies of the collectors' edition SoulCalibur V in the office to unbox for you. The box look...


Today, Mash Tactics is bringing you the goods on SoulCalibur V. Carnage and Wesley got their hands on the collector's edition of the new Namco Bandai bout and they are unboxing it live on air! After that, the guys are celebra...


I know that you've probably already seen other unboxing videos for the Japanese PS Vita, but let me sell you on ours. Sorry about the wait on this. You can blame holiday shipping delays. First, I'm not a mouth-breather who i...


It's been over a month since we posted about pre-orders for the four-disc soundtrack to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and we know that fans have been getting a little impatient waiting for their orders to arrive. As it turns ...


I have been playing The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim all day today, but had to briefly tear myself away from all the mammoths and flamethrower-hands to unbox the Collector's Edition, which arrived just soon after my review copy d...


While Final Fantasy Type-0 ('Reishiki' in Japan) still doesn't have an international release date, the game's due out next week in Japan.  Alongside the game's release, Square Enix is also publishing two version...


The September 14th release date for Square Enix's massive 20-disc Seiken Densetsu Music Complete Book in Japan is just a few days away, and as one of the most beautiful collections of game music that's ever been created, OSV...


Nolan North is everywhere these days. You can probably easily recognize for his roles Nathan Drake, from Uncharted, and Desmond Miles, from Assassin's Creed. He even voiced the defected turrets in Portal 2! Crazy, I know! Bu...


We've ripped the wrapper off a brand new, early copy of the deluxe edition Catherine boxset. This "Love is Over" edition goes for about $79.99 and includes a copy of the game (both Xbox 360 and PS3 are available), a naught...
